Support Staff Benefits

The AAFP understands the entire veterinary staff, including front office staff, assistants, customer service representatives, care coordinators, and others, are essential in the success of the practice. To ensure your clients receive the same high level of feline care delivered by all practice staff, the AAFP believes the entire practice benefits from access to feline-specific resources in order to understand every aspect of the feline appointment and experience.
